IFWT_Danity Kane 3

So…this group went from five, to four, to three, and now NONE. You would think that the remaining three members Aubrey O’Day, Dawn Richards, and Shannon Bex would be able to put aside past differences and move forward…especially with it only being three of them now…but alas this is just simply not the case. SMH. See what caused the total disbanding In Aubrey O’Day’s open letter to fans inside!

In excerpts pulled from the group’s Tumblr, its pretty clear that both Aubrey and Shannon both blame Dawn Richards for the altercation that popped off the in the studio. SMH. Supposedly Dawn has been at the center of the group’s dissension for years…Side eye at Dawn who must have thought she was the chosen one after Diddy took her under his wing, only to wind up with nothing but a chip on her shoulder. Its a strong part of me that thinks non of this would have happened if D.Woods had been around to ‘G check’ that ass…..

“I reach out to you with all of the honesty and sincerity in my heart. Without a doubt, you have always been my key source of inspiration. Everything I do in this industry is motivated by your commitment and passion. As you may know, there has been much speculation on the state of Danity Kane after a recent incident. In order to clear up any confusion, Shannon and I write to you today with nothing but pure intentions. Over the course of the past few days, we have heard countless recommendations on how we can “spin” this story or “make it go away,” as seems to be typical in our industry. We have never been — nor will we ever be — those types of women. This decision to stand by our principles may affect our future. Our pocketbooks. Our careers. And the list goes on and on. But, there is one thing it won’t affect —namely, your trust and faith in us. We owe you — our loving fans — the unfiltered truth.

During a recent group meeting, a business conversation took a turn for the worst when my group member punched me in the back of my head while I was speaking to another associate. To be clear, she was not physically engaged or threatened prior to her attack on me. This is the same information I provided to the police, and witnesses also corroborated this account of the incident. I cannot condone or excuse any form of physical violence, particularly at the hands of someone I considered family. Disagreements happen. But a war of words and ideas should never end in physical aggression.

It breaks my heart that this violence is followed by no sign of remorse. For the past year, I watched small lies turn into bigger lies. Those bigger lies turned into verbal abuse. Now the verbal abuse has deteriorated into a physical assault…”

(Note from Shannon)

“My heart is heavy. It is all I can do to pull myself out of bed to face this task. But, I know it must be done. There are many people besides myself that this impacts. Bottom line, it is not fair! I am not asking that you validate it being so. I am writing because you— the fans and our loved ones — deserve an honest and transparent explanation. My desire is to genuinely apologize to everyone who has poured their time, heart and energy into us. So many lives have been affected by this chain of events.

As for the actions that have brought us to this broken ending, I cannot speak for anyone or explain their internal struggles that prompted this heartbreaking sequence of events. All I know is what I have seen. I did not witness a shouting match, a cat fight or a brawl. I witnessed a single direct punch. In reflecting on this situation, I recalled a journal entry I wrote back in April. Initially, I struggled with sharing something so transparent and personal with all of you. However, my desire to be honest with you trumps all other considerations. As you can tell, I have been avoiding saying names. However, this was my personal reaction to escalating events that led up to my overall frustrations with Dawn….months ago.”

Well there you have it. No more Danity Kane. The final nail in the coffin. Will you miss this group of talented women? Better yet, who died and made Dawn the ruler?!
